We also encourage our employees to volunteer for local charitable projects by giving them the opportunity to dedicate an entire working day on full pay to assist local organisations. London Works is convinced that employee volunteering creates mutual benefits. By participating in the projects supported by our parent charity, we gain a better insight into the needs of the people in the communities in which we live and work and build mutual trust. At the same time, these activities further enhance the interpersonal skills of our people and promote team spirit – ultimately strengthening our company culture.
As a social business we will invest our profits into employability initiatives across east London, supporting the economic and social regeneration efforts of our parent charity ELBA, the leading regeneration charity in east London.
